Emma was recently at the centre of a debate surrounding her next movie, which sees her donning a ‘fat suit’ for the role of Roald Dahl’s Miss Trunchbull in a big screen musical adaptation of Matilda.
With the release of the trailer for the anticipated film last week came a debate about whether Emma was the right casting for the key character from Dahl’s beloved 1988 book.

Some commenters have said Emma, who wore a similar suit to play Karen in Love Actually, wearing body prosthetics is ‘offensive’.
One critic wrote on Twitter: ‘Yes, it’s offensive about Emma Thompson wearing a fat suit in Matilda. But the initial failure is that almost every woman Dahl wrote is either a sugar-sweet, pretty, good natured Miss Honey or a haggard evil (and in his mind, physically disgusting) Miss Trunchbull.’
Another stated: ‘I love Emma Thompson. She’s amazing.
‘However, there are many wonderfully talented plus-sized actresses who are constantly disregarded & should be considered for these roles instead of making a thin actress wear a fat suit.’
